As usual I’m apologizing for not posting recently, but thanks for sticking with me…. I really need to get my life together lol… No one wants to hear about how “busy” my life is, blah blah blah, so let’s get to what this post is about. Today I’m reviewing an item that I recently purchased from Mimumaxi. They launched their new collection about a month ago and the collection was so popular that the site crashed! Luckily I was able to get my order in and it delivered in about a week. I got an ON dress, and a Smock dress. Today I am reviewing the Smock dress becuase while I love both items, I REEEEEEEEALLY like the Smock Dress.
The Mimu Smock dress is described on the website as a “drop waist” style, oversized dress, that can be worn day or night. I have to totally agree. This dress is made from Rayon Twill and it is perfect. I have worn my smock a couple of times on days where the temp was 90 plus and it was fantastic. Because the dress is oversized it didnt cling in the heat and the material catches the breeze. I also love the fit of this dress. Ok being chunky I’m sometimes leery about getting oversized clothing because sometimes they make me look bigger and don’t flatter my figure. I saw some pictures of “curvier” women wearing the smock, and it looked great on them, so I thought I would give it a try. This dress I must say exceeded my expectations. In my opinion the way it hangs I feel that it looks oversized, but intentionally so, not like a too big illfitting garment, but one that hangs in a figure flattering way, if that makes sense. Most importantly though, it hides my midsection and doesn’t make me look pregnant (which some oversized clothing does)!
To make sure I keep this top in tip top condition, I didn’t put it in the dryer. I let it lay flat to dry. I want this piece to last a long time. Here is where to find this dress. Peach is sold out, however they still have other colors, and I saw on the Mimumaxi instagram page that they will be restocking the peach one soon.
Here are some pictures, I decided to wear the smock dress with pixie pants from old navy. I love wearing white pants in summer- ( I know I know some people don’t like us curvy girls to wear white pants- WHATEVER!), and white looks great with peach. Since pixie pants are super skinny, the smock was perfect to wear with them because the dress falls to my knees, so nice coverage!
